1917 - Connecticut Hotel Destroyed by Fire

News
SAYBROOK POINT, Conn., May 19.- Fenwick Hall, for forty years a noted Summer hotel on the Long Island shore and located on the point which juts out into the Sound at the mouth of the Connecticut River, was completely destroyed by fire this afternoon. Edward Stokes, who owned the Hoffman House in New York City, built the hotel in 1872. In recent years former United States Senator Morgan G. Bulkeley had the property. This Spring he decided that the building had outlived its usefulness as a hotel and ordered it torn down.
